I grabbed a black dragon cause I had never seen anything like it,also its my first year with potted plants and a garden,I replanted my black dragon in a slightly bigger pot and left it on the the front porch for the last 2-3 months and its just beautiful it's gotten bigger and very tall and blooms pretty blue little "flowers"! Now I'm so happy to know I can bring it inside now that summers over,thanks!!! Only water 2-3x a week (depends on the size and it was in the sun only 3,or so hours a day!

Bought as bedding plants, I planted these in several locations. Two went in a container in full sun, one in a container in shade and one in the ground in shade. The plants in sun grow bigger and fuller, although that may have also been from fertilizer. The foliage also had more of a dark red hue. However, they were also blow around by strong winds and were slightly flattened before new growth pointed back upward. The shady plants grew slowly and remained mainly black in colour.

I grew this from seed this year, and so far, it's done great. I've had to pinch out the flower shoots a few times but other than that, it's very easy to care for.
